Flipped-Learning Toolkit: Let's Talk Tech
Editor's Note:This post was co-authored by Aaron Sams, Managing Director of FlippedClass.com and founding member of the Flipped Learning Network.

However, the in-class benefit is dependent upon the utilization of technology tools. So what technologies are necessary in a flipped classroom?

Four Assessment Strategies for the Flipped Learning Environment Flipped learning environments offer unique opportunities for student learning, as well as some unique challenges. By moving direct instruction from the class group space to the individual students’ learning spaces, time and space are freed up for the class as a learning community to explore the most difficult concepts of the course. Likewise, because students are individually responsible for learning the basics of new material, they gain regular experience with employing self-regulated learning strategies they would not have in an unflipped environment. But because initial engagement with new material is done independently as a preparation for class time rather than as its focus, many things could go wrong.

You can also drag the green-screen or blue-screen clip over a solid-color or animated background clip.

One thing I emphasize when I lead professional development for teachers is the importance of flipping and engaging.

What is Blended Learning? A quote from the former US Secretary of Education The goal of blended courses is to join the best features of in-class teaching with the best features of online learning to promote active independent learning. Blended courses are courses in which a significant portion of the learning activities have been moved online, and time traditionally spent in the face-to face (FTF) classroom is reduced but not eliminated. Using computer-based technologies, instructors use the blended model to redesign some lecture or lab content into new online learning activities, such as case studies, tutorials, self-testing exercises, simulations, and online collaborations.

5 Reasons to Choose Vimeo Instead of YouTube Two platforms clearly stand out when it comes to hosting online videos: YouTube and Vimeo. YouTube's definitely the big dog.

I've haven't seen teachers use their document cameras attached to their computers. I like the idea of being able to record a lesson you're teaching. Not only could you review it, but you could let kids who were absent see the lesson they missed. by jcdrozdowski Jan 13
